             Immortality

A toy which people cry for,
And on their knees apply for,
Dispute, contend and lie for,
And if allowed
Would be right proud
Eternally to die for.

                   Ambrose Bierce


Everything dies on the Earth and in the Sea
But Man is convicted harder:
He MUST know about the death sentence
Signed when he was born.
And, realizing transience of life
He lives  Ч in spite of everything
As if he plans to live forever
And all this world belongs to him.

                                                    S. Marshak

(Translated from Russian by A. Khokhlov)
